How the Inheritance System Thinks? Queering Kinship, Gender and Care in the Legal Sphere

Forskningsoutput: Kapitel i bok/rapport/konferenshandlingKapitelVetenskapligPeer review

Sammanfattning

My chapter is a case study on Finland where the inheritance legislation has been conceptualised to be gender neutral and “just” (the legal share goes equally to daughters and sons). However, in the actual inheritance situations the law supports gendered and sexual inequalities in promoting marriage and biological reproduction. It is largely based on the “Euro-American” kinship model of marriage and blood as described by the US anthropologist David Schneider.
